There are 43 spacious, contemporary bedrooms in this fine estate hotel, but it’s the stunning reception rooms, designed by Lady Lansdowne, that make the place: soft grey hall, book-lined library and sweeping Shelburne Bar and Restaurant, made for elegant but contemporary dining. Stay here – within 2,000 acres of Capability Brown parkland – and enjoy one of the finest championship, all-weather golf courses in the South West. Alternatively, take over the four-bedroom Queenwood Lodge, perfect for special occasions. Bowood House, located on the estate just a mile from the hotel, has been home to the Lansdowne family since 1754. Tour the house and grounds and, in spring, don’t miss the spectacular rhododendron gardens. Alongside the hotel, enjoy a spell in the beautiful award-winning spa with infinity pool, or a round of golf, or mouth-watering afternoon tea in the library. So much to do, in such a lovely place.
